The 29-year-old tweeted that her "Pink Friday" perfume will be released at the "End of September" and that it smells "like angels playing."
When a fan asked if men can wear it also, she replied, "My boys will like it. Trust me!"
She even answered a fans question about other offerings, including a box set with creams and soaps: "Yes, dope box sets!"
US Weekly reported on Aug. 20 that Minaj is having discussions with producers about becoming a judge on season 12 of "American Idol."
"I'm not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it," a source told US Weekly exclusively. "A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening."
A second source told the magazine that the 29-year-old rapper is "100% confirmed to judge American Idol."
According to TMZ Mariah Carey, who confirmed her participation on July 23, is not happy with Minaj as a choice to sit at the judges table with her. Sources told the website that Carey hung up the phone when she was told the the rapper was being considered for the prime spot. An insider affiliated with the hit reality show also revealed that the "Vision of Love" singer assumed she would be the only woman at the judges' table, like Jennifer Lopez was for seasons 10 and 11. Another issue is the age difference between the two stars: Carey is 42 and Minaj is 29.
Minaj's released her first album, "Pink Friday," in November 2010 and her second album, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded," in April 2012. She toured with Britney Spears and won many awards in her short music career, including six BET Awards, two American Music Awards and one MTV Music Award.
PEOPLE reported on Aug. 21 that FOX is also talking to Enrique Iglesias to be a judge on "Idol." The other celebrities reportedly in talks with the show's producers include Nick Jonas, who confirmed it on Twitter, and N.E.R.D. front man Pharrell Williams.
